Here's how to check if it's a domain controller:

@echo off
setlocal
set test=nltest /dclist:%USERDNSDOMAIN%
set fnd1=Findstr /C:"Site:"
set fnd2=Find /I "%ComputerName%"
set dc=N
for /f "Tokens=1 Delims=. " %%d in ('%test%^|%fnd1%^|%fnd2%') do (
 set dc=Y
)
if "%dc%" EQU "N" goto nodc
@echo Domain controler
endlocal
goto :EOF
:nodc
@echo No DC
endlocal

I don't know of a way to authenticate using a batch file.

"set logonserver" will give you the result of which DC is being logged on to
